Tuna Patties
  • 2 cans Wild Selections tuna
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
Creamy Asian Slaw
  • 6 cups shredded cabbage*
  • 2 medium carrots shredded
  • 2 scallions diced
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
Other Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp neutral flavored cooking oil
  • 15 slider rolls
Make the slaw:
  1. Prepare the vegetables if needed and place in a large bowl. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and then pour over the cabbage mixture. 

  2. Toss to combine and set aside. Slaw may be made several hours and up to a day in advance. Store in the refrigerator.

Make the patties:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the tuna, bread crumbs, and minced onion. Use a fork to break the tuna down into fine flakes for the best result.

  2. In a smaller bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sriracha, and ginger and then mix the sauce into the tuna.

  3. Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the tuna patty mixture and flatten slightly to shape the rounds. 

  4. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a skillet (nonstick or stainless steel) over medium heat. Working in batches, cook the patties for 2-3 minutes each side until browned. Watch the heat and lower if needed. 

Assemble the sliders:
  1. Cut the rolls in half and then place a patty on each roll and top with the slaw. Serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

*You may also just buy a bag of pre-shredded coleslaw mix at the store and omit the carrot (if it's already in the mix).
